Acquisitions

I got sucked into the vortex of terror that is Forever 21 today. It’s just so easy to pop in claiming you’ll just look, but then you get charmed by a skirt that a/ is buffalo plaid, b/ has great details, c/ fits great and d/ has rockabilly potential (more on that later) that is just cheap enough to be tempting, and you’re done. No surrender, no retreat (thanks to F21’s “return” policy).

Because I feel a little guilty about spending money whilst unemployed, I have set myself a challenge. Since the skirt cost $18, the first 18 times I wear it, I have to style it in a different way. No doubling outfits, ever. It can be worn with the same articles of clothing, but the silhouette/look has to be different each time. Progress will be photographed and posted.

Have you ever come across something in a shop that you are compelled to purchase, no matter what? Those rare objects that have to be yours, no questions asked? Yeah, I didn’t even take a second look at this necklace before it was in my hands. This baby has my name written all over it (I loooove intricate jewelry), and it wasn’t going to take no for an answer. We are going to be very happy together.
